Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of December 17 - December 23, 2016

Christmas greetings to one and all.  We pray that the reason for the season, (Jesus Christ), will be front and center in your home at this joyous time.

For fun, we checked out our audience numbers and found that the past several days have seen our number one audience revert from being our usual American friends to our Russian followers.  Could it be that many Russian believers are curious about their nations destiny during these, the last days? Just so happens that our list of news articles this week includes several that pertain to Russia as well as Turkey and Iran, (see below),  all of which will form the backbone of the future Gog/Magog alliance of nations that will attempt to march on Israel.   We know that God will judge the nations for their conduct towards Israel and the Jewish people, and Russia and her future Ezekiel 38/39 allies will be no exception.


He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers of the whole earth. Psalm 110:6 NIV

But God in his mercy doesn't seek to completely destroy these nations, only to destroy their armies on the mountains of Israel as a testament to his sovereignty and a means to restore his name among the nations.

I will display my glory among the nations, and all the nations will see the punishment I inflict and the hand I lay on them.  From that day forward the people of Israel will know that I am the Lord their God. Ezekiel 39:21-22 NIV.

We believe this future battle will will be the great eye-opening event that will convince many people across the world that God Almighty is the one and only God to be worshiped.  This throng of people will become the millions of Tribulation Saints that we read about in the book of Revelation. Some of which will very likely include a whole host of new Russian believers.

Speaking of Israel, the desire to see a rebuilt Jewish Temple continues to grow with preparations ongoing towards that end.  At the same time however, pressure continues to be applied to Israel to seek peace with her Palestinian/Arab neighbors, (which always seems to include giving up more land).

Society continues to grow more godless each and every day as the war against biblical Christianity heats ups.  Mankind continues to press forward into the unknown with more and more genetic research and development with the hope of creating a brand new humanity without age and disease. But is mankind treading on the design of God and about to unleash an abomination of hybrid humans not unlike the days of Noah?

Various nations across the globe are working towards eliminating cash with the hope of establishing a digital commerce system which can then be controlled and monitored electronically.  Soon it will be impossible to buy or sell without your very own biometric identification signature, (hand or forehead).

We are moving forward quickly to the day when the last trumpet sounds and the call goes out to every Christ follower to 'come up here'.  In the meantime, its another Christmas for us to celebrate and thank God for sending his son Jesus Christ to become the sacrifice for each and every one of us.  

Keep looking up, and Merry Christmas one and all.
